Hardwood Floor Drying

DSCN3463 When your hardwood floors are subject to water damage, there are two main results that are a concern: permanent damage to the floor and potential mold growth. The typically amount of moisture that your hardwood floors have should be between 6%-12%. When your hardwood floors are exposed to water damage, they have soak up more than 40% of the moisture and lock that moisture in for weeks or even months. With that much moisture you will notice that your hardwood floors begin to cup, warp, discolor, or grow mold.


Excess Moisture is Hazardous to Hardwood Floors

Different types of wood flooring have different reactions to excess moisture. The harder the wood, the slower the reaction is to moisture. Oak flooring can react to water damage within 24 to 48 hours. Hard maple flooring may not react for almost a week. The harder the material, the slower the water is absorbed, but the longer it will take for the floors to release the moisture.
